Sketch or paint with Jason outdoors –


Throughout the summer Jason is offering sketching and painting lessons out of doors.  This is your opportunity to work alongside Jason, who will demonstrate methods of capturing the scene for you to try. 

Many of us would love to take our sketch books and draw when we are out and about, but feel self conscious or are a little afraid of drawing on our own. Working in a group outdoors offers strength in numbers and can bolsters your confidence. 

Each week a new sketching location will be posted on the blog and facebook.
